Pinkfresh July Challenge - Cutfiles and Diecuts

Pinkfresh Studios is kicking off a BRAND NEW July Challenge: Cut Files and Diecuts - paired of course with the option a fun color combo! I hope you'll come play along for a chance to win some amazing prizes - you can enter cards OR scrapbook layouts!!!


Here is the challenge info and inspiration photo:


I decided since the focus for this challenge was cutfiles and diecuts - I would really take the opportunity to embrace my die cutting, and not use any stamps at all!


I used two of the beautiful Essentials: Classic Edgers Dies - the plain scallop and the eyelet scallop of a similar shape and layout. 


I used the plain scallop to die cut the pattern paper - all from the Everyday Musings 6x6 Paper pad, and a perfect match for the challenge colors! I then layered in between each color a white layer die cut with the eyelet scallop.


I finished off by wrapping some jute string around the top, and die cutting a sentiment from Essentials: Classic Words from gold glitter cardstock. LOVE these bright and fun layers - and lots of die cutting!

Custom Watercolor Eucalyptus Wreath - Pinkfresh Studio Facebook Live Card

Good morning! Yesterday was once again my day for a Facebook Live video, and for the first time ever I didn't have a practice card made and a perfect plan - we totally winged it!! And it was pretty fun I think! If you missed it and want to take a peek, you can find it on the Pinkfresh Facebook Page - this week's video is available HERE. There won't be a live video for the next two weeks as I am leaving on Saturday for a family trip to Iceland, Norway, and Sweden - so very excited for such an amazing trip! As always today, there was one giveaway for someone who watched live, so make sure and pop in when we resume on July 18th for a chance to win that week's live giveaway - 10 AM Pacific time on Thursday morning! 

In the meantime - here is some more info and photos of the card set we made, as well as links to all the products used!


We used the beautiful new release Eucalyptus Fantasy stamp set and a few Liquid Watercolors to create our own custom watercolor - it's kind of an olive color, and I love how you can mix your own custom colors with these beautiful pigments!


The coordinating Eucalyptus Fantasy Die Set makes it easy to cut out the outer edges of the wreath, the inner portion, or both as we did on this card. We also tied some jute string around it in a bow before adhering it.


Sentiment was heat embossed in the center of the wreath, and a few white paint splatters and gold splatters with my Starry Colors palette are the finishing touches on this card!

LID June Release Day 3 - Touched Beyond Words

Hello! And welcome to the 3rd and final day of the blog hop sharing projects with the BRAND NEW June release at Lil' Inker Designs! This is a super fun and happy release - you are going to love this one! You can find the entire new release HERE!


Today's card is a bright and simple card, nice and flat and easy to mail - not quite one layer, but not too far off either!


I absolutely LOVE the beautiful font and sayings in Hand Drawn Thankfulness, so I wanted to make sure and let this one shine on the card without too many distractions!


I heat embossed it on a panel of colored pattern paper, then used Quilted Stitched Stepping Stones Die on a panel of white cardstock, die cut it into a rectangle using Stitched Mats: Rectangles, then die cut a rectangular window out of the front of that panel for the sentiment to peek through.


Finished off with another layer of pattern paper, and adhered all the layers flat together. Foam adhesive would be fun as well - but I thought this made a nice, simple and easy to mail card!

LID June Release Day 2 - Happy Birthday to You

Hello! Back for Day 2 of the blog hop sharing projects with the BRAND NEW June release at Lil' Inker Designs! This is a super fun and happy release - you are going to love this one! You can find the entire new release HERE!


I love that there are some fun birthday theme sets in this release - I feel like birthday cards are the ones I make and use the most often, so it's always great to have some fun options to create quick and easy cards!


I die cut the huge focal Happy Birthday to You Word Die 3 times - once from coral cardstock, and twice from white (and am I the only one that can't keep myself from starting to sing the song as I read this?!?!?). I layered them together, offsetting the white layer a bit for a shadow effect to help the words pop on my bright happy pattern paper background.


I stamped several images from the fun Cake Party stamp set, colored with Copic markers to coordinate, then die cut with the coordinating Cake Party Dies.


I also used the fun new Quilted Stitched Stepping Stones Die on the background panel, then adhered those fun party images around my sentiment using foam adhesive.


Your next stop along the blog hop is Karen Baker - head over there next to finish the hop before you go shopping. See you tomorrow with more projects and fun!
